Financial transparency is a key principle for Krousar Thmey. Everybody has the right to know how the funds raised are used.
Thanks to the strict financial management and the involvement of European volunteers, all administrative costs remain under 4% of the total budget.

ORIGINS OF THE FUNDS
In support of its local activity in Cambodia, Krousar Thmey benefits from the involvement of volunteers in international branches: Krousar Thmey France, Krousar Thmey Switzerland, Ny Familj Kambodja (Sweden) and Krousar Thmey Singapore. As their main activity is fundraising, these branches are a privileged relay to donors outside Cambodia. They allow Krousar Thmey to receive institutional funding and support from individual donors.
Donations accounted in Cambodia come mainly from non-governmental organizations and to a lesser extent from private donations and the Cambodian authorities.
Financial or in-kind donations of the Cambodian authorities have increased steadily the past few years, accounting for nearly 8% of Krousar Thmey’s resources. All staff of schools for deaf or blind children are civil servants of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports who pay their salary (excluding complements paid by Krousar Thmey). For the time being, this contribution is not included in the expenditure and income statement.
In order to ensure empowerment and awareness of the importance of education, Krousar Thmey, as far as possible, asks for a contribution from parents in order to cover their children’s school fees (transport and food). This contribution, increasing since 2013, reached almost 3% of the total budget for the education program at the end of 2014.
